I usually get very busy towards Christmas with loads of custom orders coming from my online shop. So, I decided to make a start on some things for my house a bit earlier this year – last year I was too busy to get anything done!
So far I’ve made some nice Christmas bunting. I’ve done some felt applique letters on it.
Applique isn’t something I do very often so it seemed to take me ages to do.
I’m also going to make an advent calendar with some of the same material and some nice contrasting fabric.
I saw a knitted one last year and knew that I’d have to make one this year.
This piccie shows the progress a few days ago, but since then I’ve also finished Joseph.
I’m going to put the nativity characters in the advent calender, with a few tree decorations too – and of course a few chocolate coins 🙂
I also bought some lovely gingerbread man fabric and I’m just deciding what to make with that. Maybe a little dress for my little girl? Oh and I still need to crochet some Christmas stockings to go above the fireplace 🙂
